‘Nonfunctio­nal’ bipartisan system doesn’t represent all citizens


Scott Pullins’ put-down of “leftists” in his Dec. 5 column, “Leftists need to stop whining about districts and do better,” is typical of the status of our politics. Instead of arguing for the rights of all citizens, he argues for the concerns of his party capturing state offices.

We need to form new parties that reflect the concerns of all points of view.

The present two-party system is nonfunctio­nal in both state and federal. We must overcome this enslavemen­t of voting for Tweedledee and Tweedledum to save our Democracy.
